...hope all is well!

...with my fellow Gingerologists!

We have had some roughness in the Huey Household the last week or so... a very aggressive stomach virus hit all of us...nuff said. As usual, I was the 'last in line' to get it, and I am somewhat recovered, but still a bit 'groggy'... so... anyway, we're all on the mend...

...as for news regarding GR, well...I guess one of the interesting events coming up here is that I will be contributing to Margaret Perry's 'blogathon' over on her great Kate Hepburn site! It should be pretty cool...I think I will zone in on the Ginger-Kate scenes only, and maybe even their 'overall' relationship, as there's another person reviewing Stage Door 'proper'... info on the blogathon is to the right...just click on Kate...and, if you feel adventurous, sign up for a review there!

I will get back into reviewing Gingerfilms here soon (maybe this Stage Door gig is what I need to get 'jump-started')... no real excuse, so get ready!!! Again, not sure about the 'mega-screen-caps' HueyTreatment at this point, since, let's face it, the films coming up will have MONDO Ginger face time...um, not a BAD thing, duh, but a time-consuming one... which kinda delays the whole process. So, I'll just put out the 'main review', and throw in a few 'small cap sequences' here and there...just to keep the spirit of that alive. And once the reviews are finis, THEN I could go back and create some 'full-blown' 'HueyTreatments'...which i truly LOVE to do, so... again...stay tuned.

Until then, hope to see y'all over on FB!
